    Pros

    The students and instructors are great I love working with them. The staff work closely to assure students are getting an effect educations.

    Cons

    Management could understand that their employees are there to assist with the development of the school and not cut their wages or positions. No real interaction for higher administration with students or staff.

    Former Employee - Director in Seattle, WA (US)

    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I was with the company for quite a while working for The Art Institutes. It used to be a great company to work for with very smart people, a good product and very ethical for the For-Profit world.

    Cons

    Everything went downhill when Goldman Sachs bought EDMC. New leadership was put in and the "Profit" part of For-Profit Education became more important than anything else. Admissions standards dropped and the important thing was getting people (whether they could afford to or not, whether they were even qualified or not, etc.) enrolled. Everything went downhill from there. Good people have left to do better things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to what you used to be and I bet you will find profits returning again as well
